FHP speak with owner of Ferrari linked to fatal crash
WEST MIAMI-DADE, Fla. (WSVN) -- The Florida Highway Patrol has confirmed investigators have spoken with the owner of a Ferrari involved in a fatal hit-and-run on I-75 over the weekend.
Beyond those new details, which were confirmed Wednesday, police have not released further information, and no arrests have been made.
The El Nuevo Herald had reported that the Ferrari involved in the crash Saturday that killed one man and injured two others is owned by Pembroke Pines racing enthusiast Radomin Delgado.
Miguel Larrieu and his life-partner of 20 years, 60-year-old Jorge Arrojas, were headed home from a dinner party along Interstate 75, Saturday, just north of Northwest 138th Street, when the Ferrari rear-ended their vehicle, causing it to collide with another vehicle.
A memorial mass was held Wednesday at St. Timothy's Catholic Church in Arrojas' honor.
Arrojas, who was driving, died on the scene. Larrieu and the driver of the other vehicle were treated and released. The driver of the Ferrari, however, fled the scene.
"We know who the owner is," Florida Highway Patrol spokesperson Joe Sanchez said at the scene on Saturday. "At this time, what we need to do is put somebody behind the wheel, the person who caused this fatal accident, the person who was driving recklessly on I-75 that caused this accident."
Delgado has hired the services of an attorney.
